Monecor (London) Limited, the parent company of ETX Capital, has announced the appointment of Simon Russell Bird as its newest Non-Executive Director. Mr. Bird will look to add value to the company by applying his extensive expertise in the field.
Mr. Bird’s extensive work history underlines some of the knowledge and expertise that intrigued ETX Capital enough to name him Non-Executive Director. In addition to his current role with ETX, he remains active in his position as a founding managing partner at Objectivus Financial Consulting Ltd. Toward the end of 2008, Mr. Bird took a position as Chief Operating Officer at City Index, which was subsequently acquired by GAIN Capital, remaining in his post until December of 2013.
When assessing the overall experience level Mr. Bird has acquired throughout his career, one can see the logic behind Monecor’s decision to appoint him to his new position. His knowledge, experience, and connections are a strong point of contribution to the goals and aspirations of the company.
ETX Capital provides services and online platforms for FX and CFD trading. The company is a “member firm of the London Stock Exchange.” In addition, it is licensed to operate in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority.
The platforms at its disposal include ETX Trader, ETX TraderPro, ETX MT4 and ETX Binary, each offering clients various features that match their respective trading needs. ETX Capital offers various financial products and instrument, including retail trading in foreign exchange, as well as CFDs on indices, equities and commodities. As part of their CFD offering, ETX recently added cryptocurrency CFDs to its platform, in an effort to accommodate the growing demand for the product. The firm also offers binary options trading, albeit without regulatory licensing.
The company recently made another important personnel move by promoting Arman Tahmassebi to be its new CEO, following the departure of Andrew Edwards. Mr. Bird will embark on his new position, as he attempts to steer the company towards increasing its market share.
